MENU Button Found... Arg. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and no available MENU button to touch, so this app was unusable until I scrolled through the ratings congress and read to longhold back button. This should just be stated within the app where it says "Library is empty. Press MENU button to add books." 4 stars otherwise; 5 stars if we could change play speed.
It works and does everything I want I have bought and installed this program on 2 phones and a Kindle Fire HD. I use it almost every day. It starts and stops when I plug it in and out of my car radio. It lets me set bookmarks-audio and written. It lets me jump ahead and back up. It has a sleep function. The controls are easy to use. I wish it had a variable speed control so I could listen to some books at 125% -150% of their recorded speed, but outside of that, it's perfect for me, and I've used the program for over four years.
Used to be good, is now dated I used to like Ambling for my audiobooks, but it lacks an widgets, so trying to pause or go back 15-30s the playing means you have to wait until the app fully loads. Also can't pause from the pull down notifications menu. These are things that Audible and the like can do and I'd like to see added.
Great app Love this app, however one complaint I will make is that you can never end your session. I always have to go to task manager and force stop. Another criticism is that once you choose not to post to Facebook there's no way to change that option if you'd like to post/ share your book. If those two things were fixed it would be perfect. Love all the free classics.
Just perfect This app me to use my own mp3 audio books and it naturally keeps my place in many books at once.I really like that I can group a series of books together so they will play one after another as if they are one book. I do find it a little awkward to slide to a particular place in a file although it is very easy to jump to a place.
Best audiobook app ever!! I've been using this app for more than a year now, and although I've tried others as well, i ALWAYS return to this one. Yes, this is a very specialized player, with a ton of advanced functions, and so you need to spend a few minutes understanding what this app can do for you. However, it quickly pays off, and like I said, in my personal opinion there is no better player around.
Fixed a problem where the BlueTooth media buttons could revert back to the default music player after another application temporarily took the audio focus.
When deleting audio files the .nomedia and image files are now removed, and the directory is deleted if it is empty.
An issue where starting the player sometimes went to the library screen instead of the play controls for the current book was fixed.
